Chrysler launches 300 Motown

by David Zatz on

2013 Chrysler 300 Motown

The new 2013 Chrysler 300 Motown, according to Chrysler, “pays tribute to the Motor City’s resurgence and determination through Detroit-born style and world-class ingenuity. Harking back to the days when bright work ruled Woodward and Jefferson Avenues, this limited-edition Chrysler flagship sedan includes bright chrome front and rear fascia accents, mirror caps, door handles and daylight-opening surround, and a unique Mopar bright chrome grille with seven sculpted horizontal blades. Large 20-inch polished ’heritage’ design aluminum wheels provide an elegant look, while its touring-tuned suspension delivers world-class levels of ride, handling and comfort. Completing this Chrysler flagship sedan’s curb appeal are black accented Chrysler wing badges and ‘Motown’ fender badges that transcend the city’s rhythm and spirit. Available exterior colors include Bright White, Gloss Black, Deep Cherry Red and new Jazz Blue.”

The interior uses pearl white Nappa leather seats with perforated inserts, placed in an otherwise black interior, with debossed logos on the front seatbacks; the car uses satin silver finished accents and real black olive ash wood trim.  The stereo will include 100 tracks from original Motown recording artists (it appears they will be pre-loaded onto an SD card). The car includes ten-speaker Beats audio with a 12-channel amp and a standard 292 horsepower V6 engine rated at 31 mpg highway. The retail price of the car will be $33,990 including destination. (Thanks, Tom Obuck)
